What do you do if the hottest ticket in town is completely sold out? If you’re Kontera Chicago, you improvise. Taking advantage of Senior Account Executive Kameran Bender living in a building adjacent to Wrigley Field, we threw a rooftop party, giving our clients from Starcom, OMD, Digitas and Mindshare a bird’s eye view of Bruce Springsteen on his Wrecking Ball tour.
About 60 guests turned out in honor of The Boss and everyone in attendance sampled a delicious array of food and drinks. The food, especially, was a huge hit. Guests cited Lobster Rolls, Mini Kobe Beef Burgers, Deep Fried Mac and Cheese and Grilled Peaches as their favorite appetizers.
The drinks flowed, the temperatures plummeted but the forecasted rain held out. Nobody noticed though because once Springsteen’s music drifted up from Wrigley Field, “Thunder Road,” “Born to Run” and “Dancing in the Dark,” got everyone moving. Over three and a half hours, “The Boss” and the E-Street Band performed twenty-eight songs including several with Pearl Jam front man Eddie Vedder and Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine.
At midnight, the final encore of “Twist and Shout” brought Eddie Vedder and Tom Morello back on stage as Twist and Shout was meant to “send you home dancing,” as Bruce said. And yes, everyone went home dancing since Springsteen delivered quite simply one of the greatest concerts Wrigley has ever witnessed.
The great food and drinks, and especially the company added to an unforgettable evening with Kontera.Categories: Conferences & Events
